Fatigue and Adrenal Exhaustion

Fatigue and Adrenal Exhaustion

If you have symptoms such as tiredness, increased effort to do everyday things, allergies, frequent cold or flu, arthritis, anxiety, depression, reduced memory and difficulties in concentrating, trouble sleeping, inability to loose weight after extensive efforts, or simply just feel worn out you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue.

Adrenal fatigue is caused by stress whether it be emotional, mental or physical stress including injury. Physical stress can include food allergies/intolerances , heavy metals, pathogens (parasites, viruses, bacterial infections, candida)or biochemical imbalances (hormone imbalance)

As a result, the hypothalamus pituitary adrenal axis (HPA axis) isn’t working as well as it should be. Acupuncture is used to trigger the body’s regulatory mechanisms to release chemicals into the muscles, brain, and spinal cord. The chemicals either reduce pain and inflammation or stimulate secretion of hormones or other chemicals to initiate the body’s self-regulating systems. Therefore, acupuncture exerts a strong homeostatic effect to restore the body’s natural healthy balance.

Here at Acupuncture Coffs Harbour we can tailor a treatment program to regain your adrenal health and have you looking and feeling your best again.
